Kiwanis Circle K Club

East Side Elementary is proud to support the Kiwanis Circle K Club of Kennesaw State University and Georgia Highlands Paulding Campus to promote the America Reads program this year. America Reads Initiative is a federal program that allows KSU and GHC work study students to tutor elementary and middle school students in Paulding and surrounding counties who are in need. Please consider donating a gently used or new book, but please don’t put your child’s name in it. A note of encouragement about the joys of reading that is slipped between the pages of a book is most welcome. The book drive will run until November 30th. Boxes are placed by the cafeteria and gym doors.

nonfiction pumpkins

Hi wonderful parents,

I have loved seeing the wonderful nonfiction pumpkins come in, and the kiddos have had a wonderful time presenting. Unfortunately that time has come to an end. I am asking that all pumpkins be either taken home, or picked up by parents by 1:30 tomorrow. Thank you so much!
